FV438 Swingfire ATGW

Not currently for sale Like to see it return? Comment below

The FV438 was the first British tracked vehicle to mount the Swingfire missile Anti-Tank Guided Weapon (ATGW). FV438 is modification of the FV432 APC with a fixed turret mounting two missile launchers, and an extending and rotating guidance sight. Missiles are fired and re-loaded in turn from within the vehicle, making this the only vehicle capable of delivering a sustained missile barrage under fire. The tubular structure on top is to guide the missile wires over the vehicle. The FV438 was eventually replaced by the CVR(T) STRIKER.

This 1/35th scale resin and etched brass model kit by Jon Bottomley features raised and lowered sights and missile bins, external stowage and includes full colour decals and instructions. This model does not include internal detail.

Completed model dimensions (approximate):-

Inches /mm: Length 6/152, Width 3/76, Height 3.5/89

Hi, just found your site. Very impressive.
I served with the Blues and Royals in the 70's and drove a AFV432 Swingfire. I am so sad that you have discontinued this model. I would have loved to be able to get this. Will I ever be able to purchase this again? This is the only site I found doing this. I will be so sad, if after all this time and effort trying to find it. Only to find it has been taken away again.
